Royce Potato Chip Chocolate

My neighbour went to Japan for a holiday and gave us this box of Royce chocolate for helping to feed his fishes. I have seen this locally selling at MYR53 for 190g, just too expensive for me to eat so I have never bought it. I wonder - is it more expensive or cheaper to buy direct from Japan?

The box says: "By breaking down old customs and producing consistently original items, we are pursuing a new level in chocolate enjoyment".

Inside the box, there is a sealed bag containing the potato chip chocolate. It is good for one month when kept below 25degree Celsius.

This is the top view of the potato chips after I have opened the bag. Many pieces are not whole anymore.

The size of the chip

Only one side of the chip is coated with thick chocolate. My family could not get used to eating potato chips coated with chocolate, they say it tastes kind of weird, the potato chip is thick, not those flimsy chips and quite salty and the chocolate is creamy rich and sweet. I can't decide whether I like it or not. Do you think you will like this combination?

    1. I used to see this at the Royce counter in the Gardens, outside Cold Storage. Not sure the counter is still there or not.

  5. I dont think I would like it although I love chips and chocolate. They are not meant to be combined and eat together. Haha.

  6. wow, you have a very nice neighbour to buy you a box of Royce chocolate coated potato chips!! Royce is from Hokkaido and potatoes in Hokkaido are, somehow to me, nicer!! surely it will be cheaper to get it in Japan than in Malaysia.. hmm, I have not tried this for the same reason like you, but I think I will not have problems liking it, I love fine chocolates and potato chips, hehe!!! :)

  7. I've tried this one (from sample given at booth!) and thought it's a nice change. I won't buy it though. Definitely not at those prices.

    1. Maybe it is an acquired taste.

  10. I've not eaten this before so I'm not sure if I'd like the combo but I do know that a bit of salt in chocolate brings out its flavour. So, maybe the salty chips and chocolate might just work.

    1. HB said (his comment below) says the idea is like salted caramel, savoury and sweet. Have you eaten salted caramel ice cream or any salted caramel food before?

  11. It seems rather strange to have chocolate coated potato chips. I must taste it first before passing judgement :)

    1. A few pieces of chips will not have as much calories as a butter cake with icing, I think.

  14. I love this stuff! :)

    It's sold locally too, I remember buying this for my better half in 2013 and she brought it to my birthday in Melaka and we ate it for dinner.

    The best part is that it's salty and sweet at the same time, a potent combination (like salted caramel etc).

  16. Mun, the chips salty and chocolate sweet...sounds weird but interesting. If given a chance would like to try. But I think I will still prefer the old fashioned chips any time.
